  1. Bourbon-Basted Salmon

    1/2 cup bourbon
    1/2 cup virgin olive oil
    3 Tbsp soy sauce
    3 (1" thick) salmon fillets or steaks
    (each about 8 oz.), floured

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees. For basting mixture, in small bowl, combine
    bourbon, olive oil and soy sauce and whisk until blended. Wipe salmon with
    damp paper towels. Line baking pan with aluminum foil and place salmon
    skin side down. Brush salmon with basting mixture and bake, uncovered,
    basting 2 or 3 times, until fish flakes easily when tested with tip of
    small knife, 15 to 20 minutes. In small saucepan, bring remaining basting
    mixture to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat and simmer 3 to 4
    minutes. With spatula transfer salmon fillets to dinner plates and serve
    basting mixture on the side.
